Written centuries before Christ, the Psalms of the Hebrew Bible have been prayed by Christians since the founding of the Church. The early church fathers expounded the psalms in the light of the mystery of Christ, his death and resurrection, and his saving redemption. In this book, a Benedictine monk examines the Christian praying of the Psalms, taking into account modern and contemporary research on the Psalms. Working from the Hebrew text, Fr. Laurence Kriegshauser offers a verse-by-verse commentary on each of the one hundred and fifty psalms, highlighting poetic features such as imagery, rhythm, structure, and vocabulary, as well as theological and spiritual dimensions and the relation of psalms to each other in the smaller collections that make up the whole. The book attempts to integrate modern scholarship on the Psalms with the act of prayer and help Christians pray the psalms with greater understanding of their Christological meaning. The book contains an introduction, a glossary of terms, an index of topics, a table of English renderings of selected Hebrew words, and an index of biblical citations. Praying the Psalms in Christ will be welcomed by students of theology and liturgy, by priests, religious, and laypeople who pray the Liturgy of the Hours, and by all Christians who seek to pray the Psalms with greater profit and fervor.

Praying the Psalms Changes Things is the fourth book in a very popular series by Lloyd Hildebrand that involves praying the Scriptures. The Bible says, And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us. and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. This spiritual confidence comes from praying God's Word, and the Psalms are particularly powerful sources of prayer for every believer. The Book of Psalms is known as the Bible's prayer book, and so many of the Psalms are prayers that we can personalize for ourselves. Dietrich Bonhoeffer called the Psalms, ...a great school of prayer..., and Praying the Psalms Changes Things is a very helpful textbook in that important school. As you read and pray, God will reveal His will to you and you will be changed. How does praying the Psalms change things? It helps you to know the truth about the situations and circumstances of your life. It will build your faith and give you a glimpse of what God wants for you. As a result, you will grow spiritually, your perspective on things will change, and you will see things changing around you. The Author writes, The Psalms reveal God's heart to us. Filled with promises from Him, the 15 chapters in the Book of Psalms tell us what He wants for us and how to obtain His blessings in our lives. As you read and pray the Psalms, you will see how much Godloves you.

In Praying Psalms Ian Stackhouse offers daily reflections on all 150 psalms. In so doing, he seeks to alert the reader to the sheer emotional range of the Psalter in the hope that this will give courage to pray bold, honest prayers. Indeed, Praying Psalms is best used not as a commentary but a basic primer for anyone wanting to encounter the psalms in all their rawness and vitality. Whether in small groups settings or private prayer, and whether in sequence or in random selection, Praying Psalms is a confident reassertion of the central place of the Psalter in Christian spirituality.

In this thoroughly revised edition of a classic in spirituality, Walter Brueggemann guides the reader into a thoughtful and moving encounter with the Psalms. This new edition includes a revised text, new notes, and new bibliography. The movement and meeting of God with us is indeed a speech-event in which new humanness is evoked among us. Being attentive to language means cultivating the candid imagination to bring our own experience to the Psalms and permitting it to be disciplined by the speech of the Psalms. And, conversely, it means letting the Psalms address us and having that language reshape our sensitivities and fill our minds with new pictures and images that may redirect our lives. --from Chapter 3

Prayer is something that is needed everyday. Not just because we want something from God and the Spirits; pray to show gratitude. Saying thank you goes a long way! To God and the Spirits, it does not matter where you were born. It is where you are going that counts. Like an Old Irish proverb: It is not what you came for, but what did you leave with. For an example, if your reading comes 7-7, Odi-Meji, you can read psalms 77 and asked and pray for guidance. This way, you will have a better understanding what has been said; the individual gains greater wisdom. Place your Spirit and Mind in order, for daily living, when following daily instructions, as given. Knowledge is given as a blessing or a curse, use it wisely

The Psalms are about passion, and you should feel passionately when you read them. The Psalmist poured out his soul to God concerning the things that deeply moved him. As you read the Psalms, you are taking a peak into his heart. As you do you will cry when he weeps, shout when he rejoices, burn when he gets angry and fall on your face when he worships God. Praying the Psalms is a wonderful way to meet God every day in your private devotions. You cannot get closer to God than when you pray the Scriptures, since the book of Psalms reflects the heart of God. Therefore, you will get close to His heart when you pray the Psalms. —DR. BILL BRIGHT Praying the Psalms carefully shapes the Psalms into personal prayers enabling you to identify with the Psalmist as he prayed. Dr. Towns delicately presents the Psalms as a living language that will move you from your feet to your knees.
